The 12th season of the Big Bash League (BBL) has provided some cracking matches. This edition is now home to five of the top seven totals in the history of the competition, with half of the tournament still remaining.

Highest scores in BBL history

Adelaide Strikers pulled off a remarkable chase of 230 at home against Hobart Hurricanes. That effort is the highest successful run chase in 12 seasons of the BBL, surpassing the 223 by the Hurricanes themselves against Melbourne Renegades back in 2017.

But, where does the Strikers effort rank among the top totals? Here is a list of the top five highest totals in BBL history.

5. Sydney Thunder 228/6 vs Hobart Hurricanes, December 31, 2022

In the same season where Sydney Thunder were rolled for 15, they ammassed 228/6 against the Hobart Hurricanes on New Year’s Eve, 2022. Oliver Davies starred with 65 off 32 balls, while Alex Hales also fired with 77 off 45 balls.

4. Hobart Hurricanes 229/4 vs Adelaide Strikers, January 5, 2023

On paper, the Hurricanes have one of the best batting lineups in the 2022/23 season. Having made the decision to drop the out-of-form D’Arcy Short, Caleb Jewell, Ben McDermott and new recruit Zak Crawley all made half centuries to get to a total that is almost always a winning one.

4. Perth Scorchers 229/7 vs Melbourne Stars, December 23, 2022

Same season, another record score. Perth Scorchers belted 229/7 at Junction Oval, with Josh Inglis giving no Christmas gifts to the Stars’ bowlers. The keeper-batsman hammered 74 off 33 balls along with Faf du Plessis’ exhilarating 68 off 33.

3. Adelaide Strikers 230/3 vs Hobart Hurricanes, January 5, 2023

A night that will be remembered for years to come. Adelaide Strikers, coming off four straight defeats, chased 230 set by the Hurricanes. Matt Short further underlined his Australian credentials with a magnificent 100* off 59 balls, with his partnerships with Chris Lynn (64 off 29) and Adam Hose (38 off 22) crucial to the result.

2. Sydney Thunder 232/5 vs Sydney Sixers, January 22, 2021

Alex Hales belted 110 off 56 balls in a superb show of hitting. Callum Ferguson (43 off 23) and Ben Cutting (33 off 14) hit six sixes between them, but the night belonged to the talented England opener.

Sixers finished with a respectable 186 in reply, and were still soundly beaten by 46 runs.

1. Melbourne Stars 273/2 vs Hobart Hurricanes, January 29, 2022

A score that may not be beaten for a while. Led by 154* off 64 balls by Glenn Maxwell, the Stars ammassed a franchise T20 record score of 273 against a helpless Hurricanes attack where no bowler conceded less than ten an over.

Out of all scores in T20s, the Stars’ 273 is only behind 278 set by both Afghanistan (against Ireland) and Czech Republic (against Turkey).
